Worked great using my ppg, so easy to set and see

H70%
by H####:

Incredible. Worked the 1st install and without additional add-ons. Thanks Galaxy S6.

Y70%
by Y####:

To calibrate you have to go to a location of known height and enter the height. I assume this will calibrate your barometer to mean sea level. however I cant enter the height now. App stops on S4. Uninstalling

Calibrated it a sea level. Next day it had us at 340 ft below sea level, even though I was on the shore.

J70%
by J####:

The app crashed whenever I tried to calibrate. Finally gave up and uninstalled. I'm not keen on an app that tracks my location through GPS, but if that's what it takes to get the job done...

My phone screen times out...most apps allow you to keep the screen on to see the app...please add this no off feature!!

X70%
by X####:

Straightforward, no permissions, works perfectly. Hasn't bugged at all through my time using it and gives accurate ft to meter conversion. Overall, amazing app, and gives me hope that there are still some humble developers out there. - Galaxy S7 Edge

O70%
by O####:

It uses air pressure to determine altitude. If the pressure changes because of the weather, then it says your altitude has changed. You can calibrate it if you know elevation, but what if you don't know it. That kind of defeats the point of an altimeter. I found an altimeter that uses gps so I don't have to calibrate it. Thanks anyway.

E70%

I'm so proud of myself
